  • Help Grow Your Business Through Virtualization

    Virtualization has enabled a new generation of datacenters. Instead of running workloads on dedicated servers, you can decrease the number of servers you are using and run multiple workloads on more powerful servers. In doing so, server virtualization technology can help your organization achieve considerable cost savings and operational efficiencies. By integrating Microsoft virtualization solutions, your organization can go beyond basic virtualization features and benefits – such as consolidating server hardware – to create comprehensive platforms for private clouds. Microsoft virtualization solutions are built with industry standards and integration in mind. By connecting together technologies such as Windows Server with Hyper-V and System Center, you can be sure you are getting the best ROI and lowest TCO for your virtualized datacenter.

  • Cost-Effective Infrastructure

    Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V improves both scalability and performance. It helps you deliver a fully-isolated, multitenant environment that includes tools to help guarantee SLAs, enable chargebacks, and support self-service scenarios.

    This means you can now enjoy a savings of up to $220,000 per year on IT costs - that translated into 91% reduction in server admin labour and around 88% reduction in network admin labour. Windows Server 2012 R2 provides new storage scenarios which offer high availability on industry-standard server hardware.

    You can make the most of your storage by thin-provisioning and trimming VM storage, pooling diverse storage resources, and abstracting them for flexible usage throughout your environment. Use file servers as file-based network storage for application data-now with the high levels of performance and reliability those scenarios require.

  • Anywhere Access

    The modern workstyle is defined by flexibility in how and where users access their data and applications. In Windows Server 2012 R2, centralized desktops and remote access solutions have been made easier to deploy and to manage, providing an easier way to give users more secure access to corporate infrastructure.

    Windows Server 2012 R2 enables a personalized, rich user experience from many more devices while adapting to different network conditions quickly and responsively. Remote users can change locations or devices while maintaining an experience close to that of a laptop or PC, enabling them to maintain their productivity.

    This means, you can expect a 100% increase in virtual machine workload density for greater hardware utilization, which automatically translates to 44% reduction in server hardware, and associated utility and real estate costs.

  • Modern App Platform

    Microsoft has surveyed 70 companies worldwide, which are already deploying Windows Server 2012 R2 to understand the expected benefits. According to the IDC Worldwide and Regional Server 2012-2016 Forecast, 31% companies in America are already deploying Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2. In addition, 49% companies in Europe, Middle East and Africa, and 20% companies in Asia Pacific are also deploying Windows Server 2012 R2.

    Windows Server 2012 R2 is a broad, scalable, and elastic server platform that gives you the flexibility to build, deploy, and manage applications and websites on-premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment, using a consistent set of tools and frameworks
